Interesting item for sale at the post office

I’m often in at the local post office, and I often find myself checking out the new stamps, postcards, and other little bits and pieces for sale. Yesterday when I was there mailing off some parcels I noticed something different...

They were selling 1kg bags of local rice! I mean -this is a big rice growing area, but I found it rather interesting that whoever was selling it somehow struck up a deal with Japan Post to have their product in store.

Ever seen anything unusual for sale at your local post office, apart from the regular stamps, postcards and the like?



After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!
